“On this International Workers’ Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to upholding the dignity and rights of our workers, and continue to work towards a future where they can thrive and succeed.

“Let me also seize the occasion to commend President Ahmed Bola Tinubu for his approval of a salary increase for civil servants.

“By approving a pay rise, the President has shown how passionate he is towards improving the well-being and livelihoods of our workers.

“I applaud President Tinubu for recognising the importance of fair compensation for civil servants and for taking proactive steps to address this issue. I believe that this decision will help to boost morale, motivation, and productivity amongst our workers, ultimately leading to better service delivery for the benefit of all citizens.”
